For Flat William's last day in Virginia he visited Colonial Williamsburg! He enjoyed touring the Capitol building, and he loved the cannon demonstrations and the Fife and Drum tattoo, since they reminded him of his own military service in the Civil War! Flat William had lots of fun in Virginia, and he'll be of somewhere new soon!
These first two shots are of the exterior of the governor's palace in Colonial Williamsburg. For a time Williamsburg was the capital of Virginia. The capitol was moved to Richmond during the post colonial period because Thomas Jefferson wanted it moved for security reasons during the Revolutionary War. The house for a while served as a military hospital during the Battle of Yorktown.
The last two are shots are from inside the stable on the governors palace grounds. Another sign of wealth during the colonial period is having several horses. It is the same as when someone owns several high end sports cars.
